The appeal by Marty Kaplan and the Queen Anne Community Council is running long. The hearing, which began August 31, took up all of two days and is not complete. The appeal will continue on Friday, September 30th, at 9:00 AM.
The appeal is aimed at requiring the City to create an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for Councilmember Mike O’Brien’s proposed legislation that would loosen regulations on Detached Accessory Dwelling Units (DADUs), also known as “Backyard Cottages” (though they’re more like small houses than like cottages).
Recordings of the appeal hearing are available on the Hearing Examiner’s website.
